We made slime today!!!
This was so much fun and this little one loved it! However his tracksuit bottoms didn't as they get all over them and I couldn't get the slime out! So my advice put on old clothes as the slime does stick. We put a mat down when making it to safe the carpets.

Not a very clear picture so sorry about that! I was attempting to do some work when this little one asked if he could "work" too! So let him have a go a typing some letters and numbers, while he honestly surprised me by typing the letter V and then saying "I'll be right back!" He then came back with a van and said "V for Van". Never underestimate what your little ones are taking in even when you think they are not listening! Children don't need to be sitting still to listen, they are active learners who have the ability to do and listen.

So definitely recommend your child having a go at using your laptop or computer as it's another learning tool and resource. Obviously please supervise them as anything could happen lol!!!

Bilingual kids!!!

It's so important to speak your mother tongue/language at home and everywhere.
There are so many misconceptions about bilingual kids, like they will not talk as quickly, that they will be behind in their schooling etc don't listen bilingual children use more of their brain and I can tell you with experience that it doesn't delay speech. At school they will always speak English so it's so important that at home you speak your home tongue/language.

As you can hear in this video my son is counting in Italian and English.

Just wanted to share as I have lots of questions about this and wanted to support where I can!

What's in the bag??? Numbers!!!
I used a pillow case and some numbers from a number puzzle to play the what's in the bag game. The children loved it! They took turns putting their hand in the pillow case and taking out a number, they had a go at saying the number and then placing it back on the puzzle.

If you haven't played this game before it is truly one of my go to!
Simple game with so many benefits,

☆turn taking
☆number recognition
☆language
☆problem solving
☆anticipation
☆working together

Also you don't need expensive resources use what you have. This game can also be adapted to younger babies by exploring everyday objects and also adapted to older children by extending their language by describing what they can feel in the bag.

This little one absolutely loves his first maths flip the flap book. It was so nice to see him exploring with numbers by saying the numbers and also counting the animals in the picture.
He finds it so easy to count up to three objects but when there are more than three he needs some help which is very normal at this age.

Magazines!!! I don't know about you but when I was little my mamma would buy me magazines!!!
Magazines are great in developing an interest in reading and early reading. A great way to see reading in a different form. Also great for children to relate to their favourite characters and show an interest in print.

Haven't posted in a while as I haven't had the strength to since the loss of my mamma! I'm not going to lie and say it has been easy it definitely hasn't been and the emotions you feel are so overwhelming. I thank God for the strength He gives in my weakness! But wanted to share an activity with you that we did this morning. We made fireworks using a kitchen roll I only ever use kitchen rolls as toilet rolls harbour lots of germs and made slits in the roll once I cut it in half. I used different coloured paints and placed them on a plastic tray. This little one had so much fun stamping and mixing the colours to create his picture. He even made one for his nonna who is heaven.
Thank you for all your support and bearing with me. I know my mamma would be saying come on Nadia you got this! She would always be the first to comment and like anything I posted my biggest fan!!!

We went on a bug hunt today!!! We had lots of fun looking for mini beasts in the garden! The children loved looking through the creepy crawlies book to see if they could spot any of the mini beasts. I love using books as a tool to aid learning and bring what the children are interested to life.

Books are a great resource! The more you read to your child the more they are exposed to new words and language. My little one has shown a real interest in numbers and this is a fun way to expose him to numbers as well as going on number walks.
